She Can Run

Ten months ago, Elizabeth Baker uncovered a dangerous secret about her politician husband - a secret that nearly got her killed. Now she and her children are running for their lives. When Beth is hired as the caretaker of a remote Pennsylvania estate, she dares to hope she has found a corner of the world where Congressman Richard Baker can’t find them. But when her new boss dies suddenly and his nephew inherits the estate, Beth is faced with outwitting a former homicide detective who is very smart, very suspicious - and very attractive.

Publisher's Summary

Ten months ago, Elizabeth Baker uncovered a dangerous secret about her politician husband - a secret that nearly got her killed. Now she and her children are running for their lives. When Beth is hired as the caretaker of a remote Pennsylvania estate, she dares to hope she has found a corner of the world where Congressman Richard Baker can’t find them. But when her new boss dies suddenly and his nephew inherits the estate, Beth is faced with outwitting a former homicide detective who is very smart, very suspicious - and very attractive.

Forced into retirement by an injury and grieving the loss of his uncle, Jack O’Malley is unprepared to share his new home with a strange woman and her two kids. He is even less prepared for the instantaneous attraction he feels whenever Beth enters the room. She is beautiful, intelligent, kind…and obviously terrified of someone or something. As Jack’s investigation uncovers the shocking details of Beth’s past, the rural community is shaken by the murder of a local woman. Driven by instinct and desire, Jack is determined to keep Beth and her children safe, even if doing so means putting his heart - and his life - on the line.

    Where does She Can Run rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was a great book. Something is happening in each chapter. It made me wonder how far from the truth was these pages.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of She Can Run?

    When he was trapped in a wall of fire. When they were underground.


    Have you listened to any of Amy Rubinate’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No this was my first read from her.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh,cry and hold my breath in a few stops.

    Story
    "Excellent!"

    Imagine getting a job, on the day to start work you show up and there is a hearse in the driveway. What do you do now, especially since you have 2 young children with you and this was to be their new home? I admired the heroine in this story. She was a strong, caring mother, determined to protect her family. The synopsis for this story is spot on, but there is a side murder mystery going on in the story that was very interesting and kept me riveted. I thoroughly enjoyed this story.
    Now my only problem is the narrator. She sounded too girlish, a young girl if you will. The woman in this story is a mature woman, twice married, with 2 children, the narrator made her sound like a high school valley girl. I was able to get past this because the story was very interesting, so if you can over look her lil girlish voice you will find the story is very good.

    "Amateurish and predictable...."

    So you are running from an abusive husband and you and your kids spend the night in a house with three strange drunk men.....that is the amateurish and of course you fall in love with one of them and almost get murdered...twice! In the end, all is happily ever after....that is the predictable. I did not get the narrator and I will not continue on with the series.

    "This book sounds like it was read by a computer!"
    Would you try another book from Melinda Leigh and/or Amy Rubinate?

    Melinda Leigh, not sure. Amy Rubinate - No! I listened to the first five minutes and I couldn't go any further. Amy Rubinate seems to be a talented voice actress, I googled her and listened to a demo reel. But it really sounds like they sampled her voice and then used a speech synthesizer to read the book. Each sentence has the same ... inflection, cadence... it sounds very robotic.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Melinda Leigh again?

    Depends on who narrates the book.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I'm fairly forgiving as a listener, but this is the worst narration I've ever heard.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from She Can Run?

    Never got that far.

    What disappointed you about She Can Run?

    I'm not a very big fan of the cross between crime- and love stories that seem to be a getting big especially with female crime writers. I don't mind a love story intertwined with the crime plot but sometimes, as with this novel, it just feels a little bit to Danielle Steele-ish for my taste.

    "Great story"

    So good to see the growth and strength that Beth gained in her time with Jack. He was so good for her and her children. Just as they were good for him. They healed each other and overcame all the evil that was threatening to take Beth away.

    "Fan"

    Story was excellent but the reader sounded like a twelve year old. Hard to imagine when a man was speaking with such a young sounding voice. Could get a better reader voice for any other books I've said enough but the rating page won't except my rating, I guess.

    "crime thriller heavy on the romance"

    good but not what i was expecting, heavy on the romance, not trashy but an explicit love scene. a little bit predictable but entertaining.
